look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle poured into mug
(11/19/2013 ... drank on 12/23/13)

L: red brown, dark brown; crystal clear ... it's amber with a heavy brown emphasis; weak head, 1/8-inch thick, dies quickly; leaves a nice skin of foam

S: caramel, corn, sour grain, creamed corn

T: nutty, like an English brown ale, loads of malt ... caramel; smoky hop hints like an American brown ale; grain; peach; toasted grain; has lots of taste, at times a weird mix but interesting

F: solid all around

O: not terrible, not fantastic ... the nutty malt taste is intriguing enough to seek it out again.

Serving type: bottle

The first local beer I tried on a trip to Austin. Poured from a bottle it had the perfect color amber with a think layer of white foam. The taste is a slightly nutty roasted malt. It is slightly sweet with very little hops. Good session beer that is true to the style.
